I'm a serious soccer player, I practice 2 times a day all week every week, and I participate in boot camps and extremely hard workouts. I've been at this for about 5 months and I have gained about 10 pounds in muscle mass. I have biceps, visible abs and a muscular stomach, and big thighs with HUGE calf muscles. My back is also very muscular as well. I'm embarrassed by it because people usually point it out and make fun of me. usually I wish they weren't as noticeable and I feel self conscious about them. Would you consider ripped woman hot or not?
Guys are generally intimidated by girls who look more muscular than they do.
The good news is, from what I've seen, guys who are really buff and ripped, a significant proportion of them actually _prefer_ girls who look like you to _any_ other looks. You're still much smaller and weaker then they are, but to them you look slim and healthy, where 'model' girls may look 'out of shape' to their eyes.
So some guys may be put off, but the guys you would probably find _most_ attractive probably love it.
I do find strong women attractive but there are certain things that I find unfemmine like large arms. I do find strong legs attractive. I.e AlisonNyc she is a power lifter she has her own YouTube channel. I think she is very dedicated to her sport and has a great figure.
I really like strong legs/thighs/butt on my women (:
Do what YOU want to do and be as big & muscular as YOU want to be. I find extremely muscular women beautiful and you will find someone who is attracted to you. Being true to yourself creates the foundation for a healthy relationship that has a much better chance of lasting.
I disagree with most of the respondents. I have always fancied muscular women and feel your body type is extremely attractive. You had me at "Huge Calves" by the way. A strong muscular body is an exhilarating sight indeed.
Most guys on here like out of shape skinny-fat girls or overweight girls
The female athletes I'm friends with(soccer and track) have boyfriends but they typically go out with other athletes
If your body does not resemble a guy then you are considered hot. For some reason it freaks guys out when they see a female that might actually be as strong or stronger than them. Plus it reminds them of a guy so it's a turn off.
